This thread has been informative to me or should I say, it has made me think. My 'adventure' occurred while I was single but today I'm married. I still head out into areas which are barely if ever traveled deep in hard desert.
My thought is how uncomfortable I'd make my wife if I just didn't come back one day. There'd be this great uncertainty which really is unfair to her. She asks me my direction & I am open about my general area of travel but it's not possible to be specific enough to find me if I were to crash and be disabled.
I'm strongly thinking of a SPOT due to that. I don't like the idea of being tracked but I don't like the idea of making my wife unhappy more.
Why be born again when you can just grow up?
